Oman Air to boost Muscat-Salalah flights
Muscat, June 29, 2014
Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate, is set to boost its Muscat to Salalah services to meet extra demand during the summer season from next month.
It will increase its number of services from 52 flights per week to 84, from July 24 to September 15, said a statement.
Southern Oman experiences cooling rains and an abundance of plant and animal life as monsoon weather patterns affect the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, it said.
The contrast in weather between southern Oman and the high temperatures found across the rest of the region is significant, and brings travellers from throughout the Middle East to Salalah during the Khareef to experience relief from the heat.
Abdulrazaq Alraisi, chief commercial officer at Oman Air, said: “With up to 14 scheduled flights a day from Muscat, and a minimum of 10 per day, Oman Air is offering a record number of seats to Salalah from Muscat this summer to provide the perfect introduction to the area’s natural beauty, rich culture and superb hospitality.
“However, seats are selling fast, with more visitors than ever before planning to experience the unique attractions of the Khareef in Salalah and the surrounding Dhofar region. Hence we would advise booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.” - TradeArabia News Service
